Two months ago we browsed through the Entertainment category in the Facebook app gallery, and found too many apps so we restricted search by keyword “music” to a reasonable 200 matches.
Surprising how none of this lot was about composing and creating music at all, so we requested a few friends for a draft from our API, we’ve been submitted a great layout idea (thank you Luca) and then we’ve been busy developing until last weekend. YUIO is a simple sequencer and sampler, you will be able to record short sounds (or just use the default beats) to create boom box tunes to share.
Did you know there is quite a few functions in it?
Like customizing your profile URL with your nickname or connecting your Facebook and Twitter account, selecting what notifications to receive by email, etc
A more detailed overview:
Profile public URL
get a short url like http://thounds.com/alldrums instead of the long standard http://thounds.com/users/34293 (both examples)

Going from inspiration to sharing (through recording) now becomes as easy as pie.
What can be shared?
Any thoundstrack that you set at public from your library (click “edit info” for the tweak)
You can modify this property only if you own the track, that is if you started it.
Share with a Thounds page
You can invite your friends or audience to a specific URL to play the thoundstrack.
Just click on the title of the track and you will get its own Thounds page, where you can play the thounstrack alone and find many sharing options (Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Delicious, …) for spreading your inspiration to others.
Post your Thoundstrack on Facebook
Go to the Thounds player page (see above) and copy the URL address, then paste in your comments. Or the simpel way: just click the Facebook icon below and you will get the preview of the embedded player.
